Dear nidhi,
Stomach ache is frequently occurs in children due to many possible causes and most suspected cause is a constipation and parasitic infection of gastro intestinal tract, so my advice is you have to go for physician for certain testing and most usefull is " diwela "or caster oil, upto 1 spoon can be given with tea so it will be very helpfull than other medication. Ultimately it will cure gas problem also.And offer some palatable foods which are easily digestible rather than going for junk food, and also check weather her eating any chalk or chuna like material or not, and if still problem persist than go for radiography.

Regards
Dr.chirag

I am surprised that you are asking advice for the stomach ache of your 4 yr old daughter. You must be aware that the answers you get here are coming from almost anybody, with or without any knowledge on the matter. You may be totally misguided by amateurish suggestions. You cannot afford to take the risk, when the health of a 4-year kid is involved.
I would strongly recommend you to go and see a Pediatric doctor. Not only he is a professional, but has the advantage of examining your daughter both clinically and, if needed, pathologically. He can also monitor the results of medication. So you can depend on his or her advice.
However, stomach ache is rather common amongst little children and in most cases they are caused by minor ailments like some parasitic infection as suggested by Dr Chirag or worms or improper digestion. It is more likely that your doctor will readily diagnose it.

hi !
May be the kid is suffering for worms in the stomach or intestine which is also one of the cause of stomach ache. even my 5 year old son was suffering from the same problem but now it is resolved as he was suffering from worms in the intestine.I wish your problem gets resolved soon.

One must not ignore kids when it comes to stomach pain. Yoghurt could be used to cure stomach ache. Processed foods should not be given for stomach ache. Cumin seeds plus honey alongwith water would be a right remedy.

Stomach ache for 4 yr old child is due to constipation and loss of appetite.

You can give more protein and fibrous foods which will keep your child health.

Hello

Stomach ache is frequently occurs in children may be due to parasitic infections,constipation, digestion problems etc..Poor digestive system might have caused due to food remaining in stomach for longer duration which might have caused ulceration in the digestive system.Consult your nearby doctor soon if possible a paediatrician.
Some remedies are:

- Try to make your child to drink more water
- supply him a diet which is rich in fibre content
- Avoid spicy diet for your child
- In this age they will be very active & playful so give them frequent food and water but not in large meal.
- Try to avoid forming constipation
- If the pain on right side of the abdomen that may be due to appendicitis so do consult a doctor to rule out that.
regards,

Hi Nidhi,

Nothing to worry, I will give you a simple solution for it, just buy a "Omum water" bottle and give it 5ml to your daughter twice a day for two days. In turn, she will get cure of acidity and stomach pain. It digest a lot, make more hungry, stop vomiting and no constipation etc.

It is a natural item. But don't give it for more than two days, it is just home remedy.
